Italian Designer Gianluca Isaia Debuts his 2008 Collection at Neiman Marcus to Benefit Las Patronas
'Italian Workmanship that is 'well suited' for San Diegans who dress impeccably!'
Gianluca Isaia made a noteworthy appearance the evening of February 22nd, 2008 at Neiman Marcus. The much buzzed about designer, who is 'hush hush' known to have designs in the closets of some very high profile celebrities, meeted and greeted San Diego supporters of the Las Patronas organization. That's the Las Patronas who organize the stellar fundraising Jewel Ball, which in turns supports San Diego organizations.
And with the giving and shopping spirit in mind, guests came to sip martinis and Chardonay, nibble on delectable Neiman Marcus catered appetizers by the bite, and very importantly, peruse some beautiful Italian suits by Gianluca Isaia. With giving in mind of course. Part of the sales from this evening went to the Las Patronas organization.
Among those fashionable there were Lynda Kerr in a dress by Temperly and a fur by Michael Kors, Jennifer Greenfield wore a velvet Dolce and Gabbana suit, Kima wore a reversible leopard gown by Jem Designs, and Maree Mossmer looked tailored in a detailed Just Cavalli jacket and suit.
The men meanwhile discreetly shopped the beautiful fabric and suit options offered by Gianluca Isaia. La Dolce Vita indeed!
